Eight Hundred and Twelfth

Dress: Target (similar #1, similar #2, similar #3)  |  Cardigan: Old Navy (shop)  |  Belt: Target  |  Sandals: Target (shop)  |  Tote: ebags.com (shop)

I felt like a walking bundle of cheery goodness in this outfit.  I wore this to have lunch with my friend at his company, and while everyone was dressed professionally in their business-casual and mostly neutral attire, I was prancing around in this.  And the way I got myself to feel respectable?  I imagined I was Buddy in Elf, spreading Christmas cheer for all to hear.  Because what is more respectable than Elf? 

And I think this is approximately the 812th time I've worn this dress on the blog.  It's the dress that doesn't seem to die.  Whenever I keep thinking I'm going to let it go, it finds a way to become fresh again--I love that!  Plus, it fits with my innate need to wear pajama dresses, so really, if I got rid of this dress I'd probably find myself unconsciously buying another one that looked almost exactly like it to replace it.

  15. I'm glad to hear you spiced up your friend's office! I'm in law school and I have a fear that one day I'll have to wear suits all the time. But you better believe I'll be wearing the most colorful shoes and accessories possible!
